If the computer simply needs to be able to run Windows 2000 or XP and have a line or mic input on the sound card I think I might be able to get what you need to get the feed back up. It won't be a powerful computer by any means. Is the application used to feed the audio processor or memory intensive?

Ok, I've obtain a computer to get the feed back up and running. It's a Dell GX270; 2.4GHz Pentium 4 with 256MB of ram and Windows XP. The computer uses about 115MB of ram when fully booted. I checked with Dave and he indicated that the remaining ram should be more than enough to run the needed software. I tested and confirmed that line input, mic inputs, and speaker output are all functional. So once I'm able to deliver the computer the feed should be back online.  grin grin

Ha.  Overkill  tongue

I'm testing a feed from KBUR right now, that's running on a Celeron 450 laptop with 128 MB RAM and 4GB HD.  Works like a champ.  Yeah, it was a bit of a pain configuring stuff under Linux, but at least I learned something in the process.

What do you mean by "temporarily up"?
I just took a listen and it turned on in my iTunes bu there was no audio. You might want to check the audio levels.
thanks.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Wow, I've been waiting a long time for this. Thank you for getting it up!\

I noticed that familiar buzzing noise is gone now... sorta miss it. It was a good indicator to see if the feed was working or not.

Once again, thanks and hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I've noticed an intermittent muffling of the sound. It doesn't seem to be on my end. Does anyone else notice this? Is there anything that can be done?
I'm not trying to criticize, just giving some feedback.
Thanks.  afro

As I wrote earlier, I am working on things.

That being said, if ANY one else would like to start feeding any freq from KLAX, by all means please do. Once I get things straight here I will just fill in the gaps of which ever freqs are not covered. But in the mean time please be patient.

My test feed from LAX is finally up and running.  I still need to do something about a better antenna (it's running off a short whip), but all of the other components are in place.  I hope to do some more tweaking next week.

Very cool ! I can't wait to hear it. When your ready, just drop me a line and let me know which freqs you want to feed.  I will pick other freqs to feed.

Volume for the feed is currently a bit too loud.

I live in a apartment in the Koreatown area and I don't think I could get good reception from the controllers because there's some sort of hill directly north of LAX (I think it has these radio towers on top of it, I'm not sure) that'll probably block the reception. I have the scanner and antenna (yet to set that up yet), its just that hill that will probably pose a problem.
